As a Registered Centre of the University of London, the BIBF is proud to bring this internationally renowned programme to Bahrain. The University of London is one of the oldest and most distinguished universities in the world and LSE, one of its constituent colleges, has a global reputation for excellence in the fields of economics, management, finance and the social sciences. Thanks to the BIBF’s relationship with the University of London, students in Bahrain are able to study for this prestigious degree without leaving Bahrain and for a fraction of the cost of undertaking their studies in the UK. As one would expect of a degree from one of the world’s top universities, this programme is demanding and successful completion requires a high level of effort and dedication. The BIBF’s highly qualified and experienced faculty members provide students with all the support and guidance they need to achieve maximum success. Previous graduates of this global programme have gone on to hold senior positions in both public and private sectors and have gained admission to some of the world’s leading graduate schools, including University of Oxford, University of Cambridge and LSE itself. I am confident that our future graduates of the programme will go on to make a significant mark and will contribute positively to the economic life of Bahrain and beyond. I look forward to welcoming you personally to the BIBF.
